Product Description

The Rhymes of your childhood- and your children's childhood - sound even better and much funnier in the accents of Moliere and de Gaulle, and though you may have to read several of them before you begin to relish the phonetic high jinks, you will soon find yourself reading aloud to anyone who will listen.

Format: Hardcover
Mots d'Heures: Gousses, Rames is the most brilliant works of cross over lingual adaptation I've encountered. In fact, it is the only such work I have ever encountered. This excerpt best describes this book:

Reine, reine, gueux éveille.
Gomme á gaine, en horreur, taie.

To have a native French speaker read these aloud to a group familiar with Mother Gooses Rhymes produces a room full of mirth.

I'm French and I bought it for my English fiancée.
This book make a perfect link between our two natives languages.
There are french poems which means nothing for a french speaker but if you read it as an native english speaker, they sound like nusery rhymes.
Love it

A highly enjoyable word play for all French speakers, especially those who specialise in the Inspector Clouseau school of pronunciation. No French linguistic knowledge is required, or advisable.

A bizarre, humorous (?) French poetry book.

Another intriguing read from a founder member of Atherstone Booktown.
